If I run this command in order to backup /etc from remote server to local dir I get a lot of this message:

[root@s-virt tmp]# rsync -a –delete –numeric-ids –relative –delete-excluded –compress –acls –xattrs rsync://server-dati/root/etc/ /tmp/test/ -v

rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1518) [generator=3.0.9]

I have also try to “setenforce 0” but the result is the same

It’s possible to do a full backup of remote /etc with SElinux attrs to a local dir?

Many thanks
